Art & Science master’s degree
The objective of the Art & Science master’s degree programme is to investigate the relationships
between different artistic and scientific representational cultures and their respective cognitive and research methods. An
inter- and transdisciplinary approach and project-oriented education should stimulate interaction between model and theory
construction, and the application of methods, particularly in the arts and sciences.
The central element of the
master’s programme is a project orientation, which has in mind that in a “scientificised” world many everyday topics in society
are permeated by scientific knowledge, and that this can lead to controversial discussions. In part, these discussions link
complex fields of knowledge and their respective specialised knowledge, and represent different contributions to the development
of our society. This is a point of convergence for the – quite often different – questions that art and science pose and a
creative crossroad emerges for finding or rejecting answers.
This point of view involves the investigation (and
the corresponding indepth study) of social and political processes, the relation, application, and development of artistic
and scientific positions, methods, media, and organisations. Thus, it implies researching an oft-controversial societal thematic
space, where the disciplinary, scientific-artistic ivory tower is infiltrated, where students locate and explore – and possibly
generate themselves – more or less conspicuous socio-technical ruptures in our society. Prerequisite is a thirst for knowledge
that leads to a representation, a creative restructuring of the respective themes, in which the respective application or
interweaving of certain artistic or scientific methods or media represents the result, and not the departure point, of the
